Heard learned counsel for the applicants and learned A.G.A. for the State.
Learned counsel for the applicants argued that it was a love marriage in between complainant Seema Gautam and Pradeep Yadav. Applicants were of no concern. They have been falsely implicated in this very case crime number whereas father has previously made a declaration regarding a severance of his relation with his son Pradeep Yadav. But this false accusation is there. Hence, for ensuring end of justice, this application has been filed with above prayer.
Learned AGA has vehemently opposed the above prayer.
From the very perusal of impugned summoning order, it is apparent that this was made on the basis of inquiry made by Presiding Judge, wherein, statements under Sections 200 and 202 of Cr.P.C. was got recorded. It was contention of complainant that she was a member of Scheduled Caste community and was married with Hindu rituals with Pradeep Yadav, on 6.4.2012, it was a court marriage too. She was at her nuptial house, where, subjected to cruelty with regard to demand of additional dowry. She was blessed with a she child on 22.8.2014, at Kabir Hospital. Because of this, she was further subjected to cruelty, assault, with demand of Rs. 1,50,000/-, as dowry and was ousted from her house. Then after, she was residing at separate house as tenant and came to her maternal house. On 19.3.2017, her husband Pradeep Yadav, elder brother-in-law Deppak Yadav, wife of Deepak Yadav, Somil Yadav and father-in-law Ram Sajeevan, did assault and abused her by her caste. There was robbery of her ornaments. She was extended threat of dire consequences. She could save herself. Accused persons ran from spot while extending threat of dire consequences. This contention is there in the statement recorded under Section 200 of Cr.P.C. as of complainant and under Section 201 of Cr.P.C. as of her witnesses and on the basis of these statements, accused Pradeep Yadav, Deepak Yadav, Somil Yadav and Ram Sajeevan were summoned for offences punishable under Sections 323, 498A, 506, 354 I.P.C. and 3/4 of D.P. Act 3(1)(10) SC/ST Act. Hence, it cannot be said that there is no evidence for passing of impugned summoning order.
This Court in exercise of inherent power under Section 482 of Cr.P.C., is not expected to make analytical analysis of evidence and fact of the case, as the same is the question before trial court. Hence, this proceeding merits its dismissal.
